π ≈

Christian Lawson-Perfect explains himself:

Why?

  • I can never remember π past 3.14159…, and typing “digits of pi” into Google doesn’t always lead you straight to a usable listing, so I wanted a place I could go to to easily get at least the first few hundred digits.
  • Ever since I discovered it, I’ve wanted to write an implementation of an unbounded spigot algorithm for π.
  • I enjoy buying novelty domain names.
  • It was a fun thing to do for π day.

I’m a total sucker for this kind of thing.
